Concerts in Downtown

Select Local Merchants

Every evening at El Corazón is a different experience. Although the downtown venue is best known for its rock ‘n’ roll attitude, its calendar presents a genre-defying variety including comedy shows and punk, electroclash, postrock, and postman rock concerts. The majority of their shows are all ages, with a special bar area for the 21-and-up crowds.

Oishii Sushi Bar and Grill's name means "delicious," which is fitting when considering its delectable spread of Japanese maki, sashimi, and nigiri. The chef's specialties include the phoenix, a roll of king crab and avocado crowned with tuna, salmon, and yellowtail, and the oyster bay, whose deep-fried centerpiece is wrapped in soy paper and eel sauce. But what really sets Oishii apart is the Japanese-style karaoke performed in private rooms with door-to-door service. That means that if diners want to enjoy?or be part of?a dinner show, they can sashay past the main dining area and to private karaoke quarters.

"Ornate" and "sweeping" only begin to describe the Crest Theatre, whose rich history extends back to 1912, when it was opened as a vaudeville house. Within its gargantuan auditorium, plush seats perch in subtly curved rows while elaborate lights and a sea-blue ceiling wash the space in ethereal hues. Moviegoers settle into the elegant confines to take in both new and classic films, reading the subtitles in a whisper to stuffed animals that forgot their glasses. Out in the lobby, a richly patterned carpet and bronzed floral motif cover the sprawling space as visitors belly up to the bar and snack on high-quality goodies.
